A year ago Wells led Marshall to a berth in the Conference USA championship game. Wells attended George Washington High School in Charleston. "It has been a tremendous honor to be Marshall's quarterback for these last two years," Wells said. "I've made memories that will last a lifetime." - AP College Football

  12/20/21 - Jason BrownrSr/2023, Virginia Tech, 6-2, 229 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Jason Brown won't try to win his job again. South Carolina's starting quarterback is in the transfer portal, he announced on Dec. 15, and will play his final year of football elsewhere as a graduate transfer. Brown, the Gamecocks' third starter this season, saw like everybody else the addition of former top prep prospect Spencer Rattler to the QB room a couple of days ago. Despite being nearly assured to start the Duke's Mayo Bowl on Dec. 30, Brown got a head start on his new recruiting world and hit the transfer portal. Because he has graduated from USC, he can play right away next season at any school he chooses. When Rattler committed the night of Dec. 13, it threw college football for a loop, and the trickle-down effect immediately landed at USC. Coach Shane Beamer held a team meeting the next day and stressed that competition would always be a hallmark of his program, but Rattler's addition made the picture very clear. - The Post and Courier

  Virginia Tech starting corner Jermaine Waller has opted out of the Pinstripe Bowl and will begin preparations for the 2022 NFL Draft. Waller made the announcement with a post via his instagram account on Thursday afternoon. "My time at Virginia Tech has allowed me to grow as a football player and as a young man," Waller wrote. "First, I want to give a special shout out to all my teammates that went to war with me day in and day out. I appreciate each and every one of you guys and the countless memories we were able to make throughout the years! Thank you to all the coaches who gave me an opportunity, knowledge on/off the field and stayed with me through the trails and tribulations." Waller started 11 games at corner this season for the Hokies and tied for the ACC lead with four interceptions.

He opened the season with interceptions in each of Tech's first three games and returned one for a touchdown against Notre Dame in Week 5. He also had 45 tackles (30 solo) and five pass breakups. It was a productive season for Waller, who entered the year with something to prove after only playing two games in 2020. He was limited early coming out of fall camp last season while rehabbing a foot injury that required offseason surgery. The pandemic forced him to go through a portion of the rehab process away from campus. - Roanoke Times
